    Re: FirstWatt SIT-3

    Agree with Jack on these, also some Harbeth work well.

    Impedance should be below 8 and above 4 with a fairly benign load.

    According to one review, the P3esr were a glorious match.

    Jack Roberts used the SIT-3 to great success with the Devore Super 9's which he eventually bought.

    Re: FirstWatt SIT-3

    I’m not sure what the supply of SIT3 is at this point. Some occasionally show up on the used market.

    Are there any other mainstream speaker brands (apart from Avantgarde) that would work well with the SIT-3 amp in a medium sized room (no more than 15 X 20 feet dimension)? Devore 0/96 come to mind but their nominal impedance is about 10 ohms. From what I have read, the SIT-3 amp prefers impedance below 8 ohms.

    Thanks,

    Fyne Audio should be great with SIT-3.

    Re: FirstWatt SIT-3

    When I quit selecting the "best" songs in an album, and just get immersed in the music and find myself listening to the whole enchilada, I know I am listening to the right equipment. The First Watt SIT-3 gets me to that place.

    My install today: MSB Select II with SIT-3 (in cabinet) on Avantgarde Duo Mezzo XD’s. Wow! What a system!

    Re: FirstWatt SIT-3

    I’m so happy for you. The SIT3 is an amazing amp - so musical and a great match with high efficiency speakers. Definitely my favorite solid state amp so far, at least the one I cannot live without.
